Luxury cars and electric vehicles are both becoming increasingly popular in Dubai. The desire to indulge in the opulent lifestyle that Dubai can offer and the desire to embrace a cleaner, greener future are prevalent in the city. Perhaps you feel these desires yourself. If so, you may think that you have to choose between an electric car and a luxury car. However, that isn’t necessarily the case. In 2017, a number of stylish, high-end cars were released that combined luxury with eco-friendly power supplies. Now that we’re approaching the end of the year, we’d like to take a moment to review some of the best ones.
1. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive
Mercedes-Benz has always specialised in producing cars that combine sophisticated style, impeccable comfort and unparalleled handling. The B-Class Electric Drive has all of these traits and just happens to be an electric vehicle. With a top speed of 162kph and a horsepower of 177hp, it’s also a surprisingly powerful vehicle. This power makes it ideal for use in the hectic driving conditions on Dubai’s roads.
2. The BMW i8
The BMW i8 is a hybrid car rather than a completely electric vehicle. However, the fact that it can be driven as an electric vehicle when you don’t need to achieve high-speeds reduces its carbon footprint significantly. Its streamlined profile and tough, durable design make it both luxurious and practical. If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s built to BMW’s irreproachable standards but which also has excellent environmental credentials, the i8 is for you.
3. The Chevrolet Volt
The Chevrolet Volt works as a pure electric car until its battery is depleted, then switches to petrol while that battery recharges. This unique approach to combining electric power and traditional fuels ensures that the Volt can be driven for hours without leaving a significant carbon footprint or needing to be refueled. It’s also sleek, luxuriously designed and a joy to drive.
2017 is drawing to a close, but these eco-friendly luxury vehicles from the past year will remain relevant and desirable for years to come. If you want to invest, why not sell your old car to us to raise funds? At Simply Car Buyers we will buy any car, and we always offer great prices.
